Large bruise usually leaves a knot on the skin and it goes on its own. take tablet Cetirizine for 1 week. Apply no mark cream. Will help you.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

I thought I got bit by something on my thigh today and I could feel a hard bump through my slacks. tonight I see a large bruise in that spot the size of a small plum red in the center and a blue ring surrounding it. It is slightly itchy and the hard bump the size of a walnut is slowly subsiding.Should I be concerned?

Hi. I am a 28 year old female. While on vacation this past week, I noticed a large bruise on the back of my upper thigh. I do not recall any trauma. The bruise started off as the size of a quarter and a bit purple/blue/green. Over the past week it has grown to the size of my palm and has turned black/purple/red and now has a paler, almost circular, center of the bruise. Not in any constant pain, but it does hurt to the touch. Wondering if I should make an appointment with my primary or just let it heal on it s own? Thanks

I ran into a bench a few days ago and developed a bruise on my thigh. Today after getting off work I noticed the bruise is bigger than it was this morning. Is it normal for bruises to get bigger a few days after an injury? Also is there anything that can help heal them faster?
